Statement by the Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in Pakistan
2019/12/04

Q: The Associated Press reported on December 4 that 629 Pakistani girls were sold as brides to China. There might be acts of abuse, organized prostitution, organ trading and so on. Relevant behaviors have not been effectively curbed and even been on the increase. What is the view of the Embassy of China in Pakistan on these reports?

A: We have noted the above-mentioned media report. It is the same old stuff and not true.

The Embassy would like to reiterate its clear position on the issue of transnational marriage. The Chinese government will protect legitimate marriages and combat crimes. If any organization or individual commits a crime in Pakistan under the banner of transnational marriage, China supports the Pakistani side to crack it down according to Pakistani laws. Under the joint efforts of the two government, the illegal marriage matching activity has been effectively curbed.

According to investigations by the Ministry of Public Security of China, there is no forced prostitution or sale of human organs happened to those Pakistani women who stay in China after marriage with Chinese. The Chinese Embassy in Pakistan has clarified the allegation earlier.

Actually, the Chinese side also sent a task force to Pakistan to carry out law enforcement cooperation with the Pakistani side, which is proved to be very effective. It is clear that certain media has made groundless story again without full investigation and inrespect of the facts. Its intention is very suspicious. We will never allow a few criminals to undermine China-Pakistan friendship and hurt the friendly feelings between two peoples. We also hope that media reports should seek truth from facts, be objective and fair.
